All Hallows’ Gospel Oak is proud to possess the last major organ to be built under the sole directorship of the eminent English firm, William Hill & Son. It is an outstanding instrument with 43 stops over four manuals and pedals. The instrument remains unaltered, giving it special historical and cultural significance. This is recognised in a Grade I certificate of historical importance from the British Institute of Organ Studies.
After one-hundred years of use, the organ is justifiably showing its age and, although mostly in working order—thanks to dedicated individuals who have given much time to maintain it—the stage has now been reached where a thorough and ordered conservation programme is urgently required. This site will document progress in achieving this as well as giving information about the organ and details of events at All Hallows’ Church.
The organ is now in the care of Henry Willis & Sons Ltd
